BtC – Steel – Richards

If you follow this blog and were wondering why there haven’t been any posts since August, it’s because I haven’t been riding… :/ The week after our big loop, my 8 yr. old son talked me into taking him to the local skateboard park. About 10 minutes into it I proved that I’m too old to be there and ended up smearing myself all over the pavement and ripping the MCL (inside knee ligament) in both my knees. So, for the past couple of months, I’ve been trying to take it easy and let my knees heal and tighten back up. With stage 1 & 2 tears, the doctor said to expect a 3 month recovery with therapy. It’s been tough not riding, I’ve been having such a fun year and can’t wait to get back to regular riding!

I went with the intention of taking it easy, but that’s hard to do when you’re trying to follow this crew. Needless to say, I was pretty sore the next day, but had a great time and am glad it turned out the way it did. I think this was the last ride out for Brock before his ACL surgery, get well soon B-Rock!

Crew: Chaz, Brock, Dane, Curtis, and me.

Richards with the boys

The boys and I had a day off from school and work, for parent-teachers conferences, so we decided to have it be our little holiday. We went for a moto down Richards Hollow, played at the school park for a little bit, and went bowling. Here’s a little video with some pics.

ps. If you’re wondering what that song that the boys can’t stop repeating, check this out.
